Woman Suffers Major Injuries in Rollover Crash on Highway 101 Near Los Alamos

A motorist suffered major injuries Sunday night in a rollover crash on Highway 101 near Los Alamos, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The single-vehicle wreck occurred at about 10 p.m. in the southbound lanes a mile north of Palmer Road.

The vehicle came to rest on its side in the center median, and the driver — a 23-year-old woman — was trapped in the wreckage, according to Santa Barbara County Fire Capt. Dave Zaniboni.

Firefighters had to extricate the victim, who was taken by American Medical Response ambulance to the Santa Maria Public Airport, then transferred to a Calstar medical helicopter for a flight to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

The victim’s name and details on her injuries were not available late Sunday.

The crash was under investigation by the CHP.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
